Well, I'd been working on the premise that "It's all about the light". These prove that's only partially true. Light and tones in these are fantastic and so complimentary to the subjects. However, your presence among the penguins and your eye in framing (pre- and post?) really makes these standout images.

I appreciate you including all the logistics info though I doubt I'll ever make it there. I can't help but wonder if by camping, it enhanced your 'feel' for the timing, various scenes and some of the penguin behavior that you might not have been as much in-tune with otherwise.

In any event, these are very intimate and special images. Thanks for posting.

If these penguins had flight feathers they would soar....an outstanding series filled with emotion...what you captured in these photos was so much more than just beautiful images but the spirit within. You connected with these creatures in a way that is hard to describe...as if you were given the privilege of a intimate and private look into their lives which played out in front of you. They are voyeuristic in nature...very sensual but at the same time respectful.

Don't even know where to begin, Eric your words have given me a new look at my own images! It was definitely very special to be among the penguins, literally living with them and watching their interactions. The unspoiled beauty of the Falklands just adds a whole level of intimacy to the experience. I'm glad you enjoyed the images, and thanks as always for your thought provoking feedback!

Thanks very much, Morris! I wonder which compositions you found particularly creative? As you know, necessity is often the mother of invention .

Outstanding set! While the wide angle "landscape" shots were fantastic, the emotional shots with the parents and the chicks were the best! How lucky to be able to make such a wonderful trip to a faraway land!

What an amazing adventure you had Mitesh. Thanks for posting the videos, they really give a sense of the habitat and conditions of the Falkland Islands, and the lack of fear in the wildlife.
I've always enjoyed your vision and composition in your images, and this series is extraordinary... I truly enjoyed each one.
Masterful work my friend, and huge congrats on another very well deserved FTOW.
